Paramedics had to make some of the most significant shifts in how they did their jobs in the last year since the pandemic hit the country.
Three emergency responders from the Murphy Fire Rescue Department – Lt. Adam Kroviak, Matt Brown and Billy Cook – recently looked back at how they made adjustments to combat contracting the coronavirus.
What has changed from before the pandemic to during the pandemic is how first responders protect themselves, as they are still going to render the same life-saving treatment to any patient no matter the circumstances.
“Obviously, we’ve had to make a lot of changes to protect ourselves from the virus given that we’re a 24-7, 365 operation,” Kroviak said.
